WNUK Networking Event

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Cigre WNUK aim to build a strong platform to support females in the power and energy sector. Part of the women’s network at Cigre is to organise Network events in order to update Cigre members about the progress of work of Cigre WNUK and create a first-class networking group to support females in their career.
Kindly hosted by ABB Ltd, we are planning for this event to be enjoyable as well as informative and we are confident that each of you, regardless of your career level, will find it valuable. Registration is at 3pm with refreshments and a chance to meet other delegates.

The main subject of the Networking event will be mentoring and the event will close with a presentation of the networking platform and a light buffet.
Our Network aims to support its members in their career development, providing a mentoring forum for 1:1 discussion. We also provide a platform generating a unified voice on the critical issues faced by women in Engineering and hence a mechanism to get these views in front of the people whose decisions impact our careers.
